Summary: The Asus Xonar DX has some great qualities, however they are not the ones that are so blatantly advertised and that enticed me to purchase this card. The Xonar DX has been touted as a quality sound card for gamers who want the best audio for their games. Asus has stated that their Xonar DX can enable and emulate EAX 5.0 in games via their DS3D GX 2.0 software. While this may sound good to gamers I'm afraid that it's simply not true.
Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Reliable Performance
Summary: I bought this card as part of a new system, but it refused to be recognized. RMA'd it, and got another, but same problem. RMA'd the second one and replaced it with an HT Omega Striker. XD (PS. NCIX RMA is great!
Pros: Well, it didn't work for me, so: none.
Cons: It didn't work, and that's with two different cards., Requires additional power input.
Summary: Also ich weiß ja nicht... Anscheinend war meine Soundkarte kaputt, wenn man hier die Bewertungen so ließt. Der Sound meiner Xonar war grässlich, total verfälscht, Bass war nahezu nicht vorhanden und Sachen wie das Upmixing sind nicht zu gebrauchen. Da hört sich selbst mein Onboard Sound besser an.
